SAN LUIS — Federal authorities say Somerton woman is accused of trying to smuggle nearly three pounds of methamphetamine into southern Arizona by concealing it on her body.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the Port of San Luis say an SUV driven by 44-year-old Adriana Palencia-Rodriguez was selected for further inspection Monday.

A CBP narcotics detection canine alerted officers to drugs and the SUV and the woman were searched.

During a pat-down search, officers say they found packages in her purse, underneath each breast and in her groin area.

They say the five packages contained 2.75 pounds of methamphetamine worth nearly $43,000.

The drugs and vehicle were seized and Palencia-Rodriguez was turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.
Authorities didn’t know Wednesday if she has a lawyer.
